Friesian bull calves ranged from €5 to €80.

Almost 500 cattle, including 140 calves, were presented for sale at Kilrush Mart on Wednesday, March 11th, according to a spokesperson.

“Trade for calves was ok but nobody wanted very poor calves or JEX calves at any price.” Friesian bull calves ranged from €5 to €80, while Hereford bulls clicked from €180 to €350 and heifers pushed from €80 to €180.

“A strong entry of cull cows again, good numbers of Friesians. A large entry of traditional breeds in the bullock and heifer rings, meet a very steady trade.”

“The continuous bad weather is holding off some men buying stock.” the spokesperson added.
